Agg assault is also known as aggravated assault which is done with a deadly weapon and or with intent to harm or kill someone in the act of the assault.

Regular assault is assault or beating up someone without a deadly weapon.

The aggravated assault is a more serious assault charge than just a regular assault charge.

The aggravated assault is an assault that is committed: with a deadly weapon. while disguised in a manner designed to conceal identity, or. with intent to commit any felony.

Simple assault encompasses minor injuries, touching, and threatening words or behavior.

Aggravated assault involves serious injuries or the addition of weapons into the equation.

Even if someone aimed a gun at another person with no intention of pulling the trigger, that could be considered aggravated assault.

The FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program defines aggravated assault as an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury.

Aggravated assault is usually a felony punishable by approximately one to twenty years in prison, depending on the specific provisions of each state's sentencing statute or sentencing guidelines.
